Best Answer

When a tennis ball hits the ground, it gives off some of its kinetic energy (energy when moving) in the form of sound and friction. So, each times a tennis ball bounces, it loses energy. Also, air resistance slows it down when air-borne. Air resistance is the "friction" of the air and the object moving in the air. When a tennis ball gets wet our is left outside in the weather to long it becomes stiff and is not in its best condition to bounce very well.

Does a room temperature tennis ball bounce higher then a heated tennis ball?

No, a room temperature ball does not bounce higher than a heated tennis ball. In fact, the heated tennis ball will bounce higher than its room temperature counterpart. This is because tennis balls rely on a high pressure internal pocket of air for their bounce. Heating the tennis ball would increase the pressure of the air inside the ball (pressure varies as temperature) which would cause the tennis ball to bounce higher. This holds (albeit for different reasons) for most solid balls as well, such as baseballs.
